What You Need
  • 1 full sleeve 9 full size graham crackers, finely crushed
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 2 bricks 8 oz each, cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 eggs plus 1 yolk
  • fresh strawberries for serving
  • 1-1/2 cups water
  1. Mix graham crackers, sugar and melted butter together until coated well. Press firmly into the bottom of a 6" springform pan using the back of a spoon or a pastry tart shaper. Place into the refrigerator.
  2. Mix cream cheese in a mixing bowl. Beat in sugar and mix well. Add vanilla and egg, one at a time beating well after each addition. Pour into prepared crust.
  3. Cover the cheesecake with a single layer of paper towel. Cover the paper towel with foil and loosely wrap the pan.
  4. Fold a long piece of foil in half and place under the cheesecake pan. Fold up the ends to form a sling.
  5. Place the rack into the bottom of the instant pot and place water into the pot. Place the cheesecake and sling into the instant pot. Tuck in the foil sling ends if it extends beyond the top of the pot.
  6. Close the instant pot and the pressure release valve. Set the instant pot to manual, high pressure for 30 minutes. Let steam release naturally for 15 minutes before releasing the pressure valve and opening the pot.
  7. Carefully remove the cheesecake and sling and discard foil, paper towel and sling. Let set to cool on the counter for an hour before refrigerating overnight.
  8. To serve: top with fresh strawberries and slice to serve.
